The Necronomicassette is a cursed videotape from the 2017 Continuum.
The Necronomicassette is a VHS tape of unknown origins, said to summon the living dead when played (though some rumors instead claim that watching it turns one into a zombie, oneself). It was acquired at some point before May 2019 by Webby Vanderquack and Huey Duck, who played it for the hell of it and did, in fact, find that this resulted in the skies turning blood-red as an arbitrary number of greenish zombies burst from the ground and began to attack the living. Not before they caused Donald quite a fright, they were sent back to wherever they came from by Huey reading a spell from the Junior Woodchucks' Guidebook.
Behind the scenesEdit
Featured in the 2019 DuckTales 2017 episode The Golden Spear, the Necronomicassette is a parody of the Necronomicon, a book of ancient and forbidden knowledge introduced by author H. P. Lovecraft, and, in particular, of the version thereof featured in the Evil Dead film series (after whose cover the jacket of the Necronomicassette is designed). In reference to the latter influence, Huey, lying to Donald to reassure him, claims that The Necronomicassette is “a horror movie from the 90's”. Of course, the concept of a cursed VHS which summons undead horrors is also at the center of a different horror film series, The Ring.
